Board Leaf Fern

Even though it looks like one, a Crocodile Fern is not a typical Bird’s Nest Fern. It has running rhizomes from within which its fronds come up. It’s light green, segmented leaves have dark green veins that give it a distinctive texture like the kind you find on crocodile skin. A native of Malaysia, these are plants that are stunning to look at, yet extremely easy to care for.

Adopting and caring for a Broad Leaf Fern

Adopting: Adding a lush, well-grown Crocodile Fern to a plant collection is a feeling only a plant parent can understand. At eplants, we bring you display-ready plants with high-quality growth, compact shape and well-formed leaves.
Locating: Direct sun or overly bright light can bleach or burn the leaves of your Crocodile Fern. So any area that offers filtered light is best for these plants. They do extremely well in antique-styled brass and metal planters in areas with indirect light. Since these plants need regular watering and misting, care must be taken when they are located in areas with extremely low light.
Potting: Ferns need rich, well-drained soil that has been fortified with organic material. So it is ideal to mix good quantities of compost to the potting mix. A blend of coco-peat, compost and river sand in a 30:50:20 ratio should help your Fern to do well.
Watering: Ferns demand regular watering and misting, even though they can’t stand waterlogged conditions.
Fertilising: If you have a good potting mixture and your plants are looking bushy and healthy, you can skip the fertilising entirely. However, if you are keen to feed them use an organic liquid fertiliser. If you are using a chemical mix, dilute them to have the prescribed strength and fertilise them once a month or so. Ensure that the chemicals don’t come in contact with the leaves.
In spite of its ‘exotic’ credentials, a Crocodile Fern is extremely easy to care for. Just ensure that you protect them from direct sunlight, and give it the right kind of humidity to thrive. Indoors, or in a shaded corner outdoors these plants will add a touch of class with very little effort.

    I stumbled on this site and I was impressed by their collection. Took a chance and order three ferns from them and I was surprised by the speed of the delivery as Im in mumbai. And their packaging is absolutely the best! I know because I ordered plants from Amazon and various other sites.
    The best is that the ferns I received are good sizes and in execellent conditions. I will definitely buy more from them.

    5 stars r less for rating them. Anyways, ordered a Crisie Crossed variegated fern n received an excellent plant. Firstly the packing was very professionally done with a lot of thought n personal touch put into it. 2ndly the plant was in great shape and looked better than what was displayed on their site. Both these points are much better than other online plants service providers.
    Would surely be ordering more and would recommend eplants to other plant lovers too.
    Keep up the great work.
